    Well I would just like to share my joy with you guys.

    After getting an email for ONE of my vids to get monetized, I received another one today asking me to share revenues on every video (if I want) on my channel.

    So far I have made 0.13 cents - which, I know is chump change, but its with cents that we make dollars.

    I have been working hard to do this as white hat as possible, and since this is all original material, I am pretty stoked about this.

    Very tiny amount indeed but in life we must learn to see small victories when there are.

    This event has definatly motivated me and my video partner to keep working on this and even harder, as hey we are now seeing it is possible, even if it is not much so far.

    Congratz for your attitude.

    A lot of people stop halfway their plans/campaigns/projects because the ROI disappoints them.

    What they don't see is the bigger picture. If something makes money and it can be scaled that means it can make more money.
    There are no overnight riches in IM. You work, you make money. You work more, you make more money.
    And when you make enough money, you can outsource tasks. Only then you can work less to make money...:D

    Stay motivated and enjoy your victories, doesn't matter how small they are...

    Congrats man!!! Now you gotta stay consistent with your video creation and social media efforts and apply for partnership in a month or so. When you apply be sure to state that your account is already fully monetized and you'll more than likely get accepted! Not that it makes a big difference since you've already got the most important part of partnership $$. But it's still cool to be able to brand your channel and make custom thumbnails.

    Congrats man, 0.13$ is not a lot of money but if you can win that x10 x20 or x50 , you will win some nice passive incomes ;)

    Thanks everyone for their comments, We really appreciate it.

    Now Im kinda pulling out my hair a little because of the music / royalty free bullshit. Now I know for the future to keep all that fucken info to ensure that I don't have to DE-Monetize anything.

    We have some bigger and smaller plans as far as future videos go, and are going to try to put something up every 1-2 weeks and keep consistent instead of every month.

    the 13 cents came from a video that got monetized on the 23rd of sept. so its not too too bad.

    And the more videos are up, the more traffic will be coming in and the nextstep is also having a website with adds on it. No way on relying just on youtube for this. as some of our material cannot be monetized on there.

    However, we can still rake in views from the website and make cash at the same time.

    I just gotta get my shit together and learn to make a website...(idea which horrifies me - I gave up doing a blog after 3 days hahaha)

    congrats man. its not a lot of money but you now know that your method works. the only way that you can fail is if you quit. just keep scaling up and dont quit, that is how a building is built. you must first lay the foundation and then you build on that foundation. maybe you should try some other ways of monetizing your videos that might pay you more money, its worth a shot. but now you at least know that youtube marketing works.

    Well I am in the works of setting something up to bring in even more views.

    Problem is I have a slow ass laptop for internet works and the wifi i connect to is ermmm slow...if you get my ddrift. definatly slows down all my processes.

    There are just so many damn things to be done! Its easy to get lost in everything and try to do it all at once.

    It is also easy to forget to take notes of what you do so you can repeate the process!

    What I would like, is a damn program that would go through my list of messageboards and signs in and posts by itself - WHILE I SLEEP hahaha - that way I could work on more video :)

    Good luck! Hope you'll get some more!

    I believe that the hard part is getting to earn ANY MONEY AT ALL - once you manage to reach that turning point, you finally see it is possible, no matter how little it is! Which is greatly inspiring and motivating! I am not stopping here trust me!

    thanks for the best wishes :)

    So this month - I was a few sense short of 3$ from youtube.

    That is 21x what I got the previous month.
    I have uploaded more videos but the ads are not showing up on the vids for some reason...but have not been declined.

    Congrats really liked your attitude just a short personal story
    started with IM SEO business with a friend and cashed a good money with him he was the one who ever reads BHW and I was the one who helped him in the niche for each method but after a few years we stoped doing thing together them I was on my own.
    Started with the PPD from filesonic etc the idea of uploading 2-4 porn videos in a few good porn forums and be able to cash little as $1 would make me happy to buy domain and hosting etc
    So after uploading more than 5gb and earning less 1 dolar at the first 4 days that made me sick.
    So I started selling youtube views at fiverr got like 50 dollars in the first month I've discovered that would be better to contact directly some ecommerce sites etc whoever had a product and business to sell online and tell them to create a nice video and I would help them choosing good keywords and sending the views to their videos to increase SEO and exposition of their business I would charge more per thousand's views because of the idea and the help in keyword research, that made me a good decent amount of money to someone who just study was good enough to my parties and to drink a hella cold beer with me friends not to tell to avoid complaints and getting bad feedback in fiverr when you contact someone directly if by any chance you cant give the amount of views wich they paid for in the time frame you can always overdeliver with a little delay wich make them always happy.
    Them I bought scrapebox and started doing SEO projects for local business most of them gets subscription since they know nothing about SEO and at the begining I praticaly teach about the very basic of SEO like keyword research some at the beggning wants to rank extreme competitive keywords or keywords wich doesnt receive even a 1k local month searches with 0 monetizing power thats makes me to gain confidence and they prefer to pay me 50-150$ per month just to increase in a moderate speed their rankings than paying around 1k to some stupid company wich only ranks the keyword that you ask without giving you real good advices and just blasting gazzilions links
    Now I'm planning to build a good autority site in some niche contacting some friends at university to make sure I'll provide the best content in my niche

    just in short If you are making X$ in youtube partnership if you channel thoose videos to another website with some affiliate marketing product you are able to do 10X$ but what if you channel thoose views to you own business website dunno whats your niche or what about is your channel but this is what I like to keep improving my earning related to IM SEO

    Thanks for sharing that story dude!

    I actually do videos that deal with live performances, comedy or short films. We are not really selling anything (although we are up for hire).

    I have been setting up a blog with every video we have ever worked on, to use sort of as a portfolio. I set up some adsense on there (not getting clicks though...)

    I also started the blog halfway through last month and am only receiving very few visitors (25 unique visitors however 60% are returning - so I guess it is not ALL bad)

    This is my first time doing this so obviously I am far from being an ace at this (analytics shows don't lie haha)

    This is harder than anticipated - Although I am down with challenging stuff, this one is a bit of a ball buster though.

    I would like to get this rollin' soon, as I have some vids of artists with semi high visibility in my vids and don't want to miss the boat.
